The BRIEFER VERSION was created expressly for those professors who were drawn to Weiten's fresh, original approach to the subject matter and his impeccable scholarship-but who found the book's coverage a bit too much for their students to master in one term. This Fourth Edition of the Briefer Version is visually stunning, conceptually integrated, scientifically sound, and fun to read. Making learning easy without lowering the level of scholarship, Weiten presents introductory psychology in a way that will be meaningful to students long after they have completed the course. In this Brief Edition, as in his longer text, Wayne Weiten shows both the unity and diversity of psychology's subject matter, illuminates the process of research and its intimate link to application, and gives students a presentation that is both challenging to think about and easy to learn from.
